“Interesting History”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

Tu Duc has a very interesting history, so I reccomend getting a tour guide who knows a lot of information about it, because thats where the value of this trip is, in learning about every aspect of this tomb, and how it was thought out and planned by Tu Duc, & why it was planned that way. His general history is interesting also.

It is also the most preserved of the royal tombs. Its beautiful with lilypads everywhere. Its also like s short walk from a conical hat/incense village, where they sell really good quality hats.

“Picturesque”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

Worth seeing - we hired a driver and he took us around to all the tombs so that we could move at our own pace (which is generally much faster than large groups). The grounds are very picturesque and tranquil. Lovely to stroll around.

“Incredible tomb”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

The tomb is amazing, surrounded by lakes with lotus flowers it is really beautiful. The grounds are tranquil and the statues impressive. There is not a lot of shelter so on a hot day you need a hat and water to help get around.
